6Torque Converter Assembly Type:3-element1 stage1 phaseAssembly: Pump, Turbine and StatorThere are many vanes on these components for using oil to transfer power
7These 3 components combined with oil, give us as smooth power transmission. Safety valve: fitted to oil input, ensures the input oil pressure is no more than 0.87MPa.Relief Valve: fitted on oil output, ensures the oil pressure inside the torque converter is maintained below 0.45MPa.
9Principles of Torque Converter Oil Flow: Pump→ Turbine → Stator→ pumpThere is 2 mm clearance between pump and Turbine, and transfers power by Oil. There is no mechanical impact, they protect each otherAssist hydraulic system: to resist loss of oil; to maintain the normal oil temperature.
10Operation of Torque Converter When the load increases, the dozer ground speed is reduced, causing turbine speed to slow down. But at this time the energy from the pump transfer to torque converter is not reduced. This energy is still transferring to the stator through the slowing turbine. Then the energy to stator from turbine, results in the turbine gaining torque, then the turbine output torque is increasing.
11Torque Converter Operation 1.Change torque automatically2.Absorb vibration, prolong working life3.Good power transmission capability, driving at slow speed4.Simple operation5. Start smoothly, eliminates any shocks in power train6.Easy maintenance
12High Torque Converter Oil Temperature Normally, SD22 Torque Converter Temperature of output oil is oC. For a short time, a higher temperature of oC is allowed, but long term high temperature shows there is something wrong, for the following reasons:1.Shortage of OilTorque converter, transmission, main drive, steering and final drive will take 30% of engine rated power. This power will transfer to heat energy, and increase the oil temperature. Therefore it requires enough oil to absorb this heat.If the oil quantity is not sufficient, the oil temperature will be too high.
132.Oil Pressure of input and output are incorrect If torque converter input oil pressure is not correct (Standard: 0.87MPa) or the oil is dirty, the piston of valve will stay at relief position, so the oil pressure to the torque converter is low. This leads to a loss of efficiency and excessive oil temperature.If torque converter output oil pressure is not correct (Standard: 0.45MPa) or the oil supply is blocked, return oil temperature will be too high. The flow of oil to oil cooler is reduced, and the oil temperature too high
143. Incorrect OperationExcessive use of low engine speed for extended time, torque converter will work at low efficiency. Torque converter will lose power, and transfer heat energy leading to high oil temperature.
15Power Transmission Case The types of Transmission Case:Base Operation type:1.Manual Gearshift；2.Hydraulic booster；3.PowershiftBase Transmission type:1.mechanical type; 2.Planetary GearPlanetary type powershift transmission case type: Planetary Gear, Multi-disc clutch, Hydraulic control, forced lubrication.Function:1.Enable forward and reverse2.Select different gear ratio3.Matched with the torque converter, enables a wide range of power output and ground speed
16Planetary Gear SystemCDAThe system consists of:A: Sun GearB: Planetary GearsC: Ring GearD: CarrierThe planetary gears are installed on the carrier being in constant mesh with the sun gear and the ring gearB
18Principle of Planetary Gear system If the carrier is fixed, the torque is transmitted from sun gear to planetary gear, and is transmitted from planetary gear to ring gear to make the ring gear rotate. Rotation direction of ring gear is opposite from sun gear.A: Sun GearB: Planetary GearC: Ring GearD: Carrier
19Principle of Planetary Gear system If the ring gear is fixed, the torque is transmitted from sun gear to planetary gear. The planetary gear rotates by itself, at the same time rotates around sun gear. Rotation direction of the planetary gear shaft is opposite from sun gear.It is a slowdown outfit that power input from sun gear, output from carrierA: Sun GearB: Planetary GearC: Ring GearD: Carrier
20The above principles are structure principle of No The above principles are structure principle of No.1,3,4 planetary gear system.The sun gear is active in No.1 Planetary Gear systemThe carrier is active in No.3 & 4 Planetary Gear system
21This is structure and principle of No.2 planetary gear system. The rotate direction is contrary with No.1 planetary gear system.
22SD22 powershift transmission system Consists of 4 planetary gear systems with 4 clutches, and 1 locking clutch (no planetary gear system) and housing, input shaft, end gear and output bevel gear.No.1 clutch is for Forward GearNo.2 clutch is for Reverse GearNo.3 clutch is for 3rd Gear ShiftNo.4 clutch is for 2nd Gear ShiftNo.5 lock clutch is for 1st Gear Shift
24SD22 powershift transmission system The 4 planetary gear system clutch’s washers and disc are the same, but the disc quantity is different. Its design is based on transmission torque.The No. of Clutch Washer Q’ty Disc Q’tyNoNoNoNoNo
25No.1- 4 planetary gear systems’ structure are same, clutches’ washer and disc are same, but the disc quantity and piston is different.
26Method of fixing of each planetary gear is as this figure, it is actuated by the clutch. Engagement of clutch is actuated by oil pressure from control valve pushing piston 3.
27Disengagement of clutch is actuated by return spring 33 which pushes piston 3 to original position after oil pressure is cut off.The function of disc spring 42 is to improve operating speed of piston 3 and improve release the discs.
28This figure is a drawing of No. 5 locking clutch This figure is a drawing of No.5 locking clutch. When the clutch disengages, oil in the cylinder body 16 by the action of centrifugal force. Disks can’t disengage quickly, only by disk spring 29. This can make the clutch half disengage. This will cause difficulty for next gearshift. In order to eliminate this problem, the ball check valve 17 is incorporated in the piston after the rotary clutch.
29No.5 Clutch is a lock clutch. When this clutch engages, pressure oil from controlling valve enters into oil cavity and pushes piston 26, at the same time, the oil pushes check valve ball 17 to plug the hole of valve. The clutch is engaged quickly.
30No.5 Clutch is a lock clutch. When the pressure oil from controlling valve is cut off, by the action of centrifugal force, ball 17 can move to the direction of arrow in this figure. At this time, the hole of valve cage is opened and the oil is drained off.
34Transmission Lubrication and Cooling: It’s a forced lubrication system, from above and below, two ways divided through a valve.Transmission Case lubrication pressure is 0.124Mpa. Upper way lubricates the second half bearing and cools the second half discs; lower way lubricates the first half bearing and cools first half discs.
35Main Drive (SD22) Assembly: Bevel gears Horizontal Shaft Bearings Sprocket HubFunctions:Power train gear reduction to increase the final drive torque
36Steering Clutch Function: To disengage the shaft drive and control steeringType:Wet, multi-disc, spring loaded, hydraulic separated, normally engaged.Spring forceF=3.2 tons
41Steering Case Lubrication and Breather There are 3 associated components, Main drive, Steering Clutch and Steering Brake. They are lubricated and cooled by the oil in steering case. The oil level can be checked with oil dipstickSteering case has a breather to balance inside and outside pressures.
42Final Drive Final Drive: One Set Final Drive on each side. 2 stage spur gears reduction. Floating Seal and O-ring to contain oil, then connected outside with breather.Assembling Sprocket hub and gear requires 60 tons force with special tools.
44Recoil system for Track Function:1. Maintain track tension2 absorb the vibration of idlerNote:the fixed pressure is tons, it requires special fitting tools
45Measurement of Track Tension use a ruler placed on the track grousers between carrier roller and idler, the measure distance is C，C=20-30mmSD32 track has more wide, the distance is bigger between carrier roller and idler, the measured distance is C=30-40mmIdlerCarrier roller
46IdlerFunction:Gives guidance for track chain and maintains track tensionLubricationThere are lub oil in the cage that is sealed by floating seal, between idler and support housing. The oil capacity is 70%.
47To Adjust Idler Clearance If the clearance is over limit , the idler will swing, and track links off centre and will wear the sprocket.If Clearance in one sideA＞4mm,it must be adjusted intoA=0.5-1mmIf Clearance of up and down(B+C)≥5mm(B+C)=2mm。
48Track RollerFirst it carries dozer weight, secondly it prevent track chain moving off centre of track frameBushing and float seal is similar to idler
49Track Shoe AssemblySupports all of the dozer weight, and determines the ground pressureFour high strength bolts fix track shoe onto track link,bolt torque:SD16:70kg.mSD22:76kg.mSD32:100kg.m
50Use and Maintenance of Track Shoe Track supports 30 tons bulldozer weight, and if the working conditions are bad, it will wear more quickly, so use and maintain it correctly.Often check the tension of track shoe. use a ruler put the track grousers between carrier roller and idler, the measure is C，C=20-30mm; SD32 track is more weight, the distance is more large between carrier roller and idler, the measure is C=30-40mmWhen the work is hard, the track shoe ass’y will need to be adjust tighter; if the work is moderate , the track shoe ass’y tension can be adjusted back.
51Use and Maintenance of Track Shoe 2. The sprocket segments need be replaced when the sprocket segments wear under the limit. 3. Don’t drive dozer hard and avoid track damage and excessive wear. 4. If there is excessive track play and noise, you must stop and check tracks and machine. 5. When the dozer across the railway line, you must drive it across the railway at right angle, and don’t change speed, don’t stop and reverse, avoid track shoes locking in railway line. 7. After working, you must check tracks, and if there is something wrong. If there is something wrong, must repair or replace.
